Master Bond EP17HT-LO is a one part epoxy for bonding, sealing, coating and encapsulation applications, formulated to operate over the wide temperature range of -80°F to +650°F. This low viscosity system has very low exotherm upon curing and can be cast in sections up to and beyond a ½ inch in thickness. As a single component system, it offers convenient handling, doesn't require mixing and has an unlimited working life at room temperature.
The epoxy is a high performance material with a high tensile, compressive and lap shear strengths of 10,000 psi, 20,000 psi and 3,200 psi at room temperature, respectively. This epoxy bonds well to an array of substrates including metals, composites, ceramics and plastics. Shrinkage upon cure is exceptionally low.The product is 100% reactive and contains no solvents or diluents.
This formulation resists chemicals such as acids, bases, fuels, salts, oils and many solvents. It also is a competent electrical insulator and retains these properties even when exposed to elevated temperatures. The compound passes NASA low outgassing tests making it well suited for applications in the aerospace, opto-electronic, oil/chemical processing and specialty OEM industries. This tan colored, no mix epoxy system is available for use in a variety of sizes ranging from ½ pint to 5 gallon containers.
